. republican senator lindsey graham has revealed he says the death toll in u.s. drone war overseas. at a speech in south carolina wednesday night, he said -- his comments mark the first time a u.s. official has offered a figure for those killed in nearly a decade of u.s. drone strikes abroad. the 4700 figure matches the high end of an estimate by the bureau of investigative journalism, which extensively has covered the strikes. the news comes as the obama administration continues to stonewall members of congress on fully releasing the justice department memos explaining the legal rationale for targeted killings overseas. the white house agreed to a least partially disclose the memos earlier this month after a senate uproar amid the conformation hearings for cia nominee john brennan. but the new york times reports the administration has adopted a strategy of continuing to deny senators full access while simultaneously negotiating with republicans to reveal more information on the deadly u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the strategy appears focused on ensuring the white house has enough votes f

. this is the statement. "the reports that the u.s. told allies that we are considering 8,000 to 12,000 u.s. troops after 2014 are not correct. a range of 8,000 to 12,000 troops was discussed, but it was discussed as the possible size of the overall nato mission, not the u.s. contribution." ah, important clarification. so the defense minister from germany had apparently told reporters that 8 to 12,000 troops was how many troops america was going to keep in afghanistan. everybody thought that was very big news since that's not what we heard hear at home at all. maybe that is how the german guy understood it, but it is apparently not the way that leon panetta meant it. that was the headline out of brussels today. those troops, that's nato combined, that's not just us. that was the headline. the other news of course was that representing the united states and apparently confusing the germans in brussels today was leon panetta, the guy who with great fanfare supposedly just stopped being our secretary of defense. here was leon panetta at his farewell ceremony, his big ornate farewell ceremony. this is dated

edelstein, great to have you with us. >> thank you. >> looking forward to a big sunday night show. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening. >> good evening and happy weekend to i don't. >> dwlou too, my friend. >> thanks to you at home as well for joining us this hour on a friday. listen, neither the house nor the senate is in session. all the governors of the country are locked in closed door governor association meetings. the president is talking to the prime minister of japan without any of us getting to listen in. this is the kind of day that shouldn't have any news in it at all. but fridays apparently are the new mondays, or at least the new day in which there is always a lot going on in the news. so it turns out on a friday, again, we have a ton to get to in the news. including a story tonight that we have been covering for months that now looks like it is about to blow wide open into a national story in michigan. it's a story about the city of detroit. that's coming up. also, very important piece of the puzzle in terms of fixing the sequester thing that is due to
're consequences. that to me is what is the greatest thing it taught us is we shouldn't have had to kill seven more people to learn what we already knew and had forgotten. >> could the "columbia" crew have been saved just somehow? and in your mind and heart and professional opinion, was every available option exhausted? like and when i say saved, i mean like "apollo 13." >> ed, that's what people were hoping for. after the disaster, my colleagues, and i had left mission control at that point. i had already gone off into private consulting on flight safety because i was tired of the way nasa was decaying. but people who were still there told me they wished they had the warning. if they had ten days warning, early in the flight, had seen the hole in the wing. that would have mobilized all their energies and the whole country's and the world's energies. they would have tried to find ways to macgyver the wing and find something on board to stick in the whole. they had to find ways to get the other ship that was being counted down into space sooner. and if they didn't have enough air on board, they woul
are working to kill us. torture is obviously a separate issue. once captured you no longer pose a threat, but people hiding in ungovernable tribal areas who still pose a threat must be dealt with. i understand the fears of progressives as obama conducts a foreign policy that looks like bush's. i am not pro-drone. i am pro-destroying al qaeda. i am pro-protecting america. i am pro-a better drone program and i am pro ending this war as soon as we can but i fear that's a long way away. as douglas macarthur said, only the dead have seen the end of war, and we may now be in a permanent war. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> passionate patriotism from toure. thank you. it's monday, february 11th, and a pope has abdicated, the president prepares to face the nation, but republicans are still stuck on benghazi. >> the president's state of the union address. could be the president's last best chance to address a captive audience. >> do republicans have the leverage now? >> none of the things i ran on as part of the tea party have been fixed. >> i don't want to live with th
are at an all time low. seems to me some of those profits could be used to pay workers a bit more. let's be honest here though, the real reason republicans oppose the minimum wage isn't their conservative ideology. after all, what's conservative about subsidizing the profits of private corporations through welfare, food stamps and medicaid so they can underpay their workers? the real reason they oppose the minimum page is precisely because their corporate benefactors want the taxpayer subsidy of low wages to continue. they're all for corporate welfare. it's time for the gop's corporate sponsors to step up and take some personal responsibility instead of leeching off the taxpayer. maybe if they took a stand for an increased minimum page they could make they're rebranding substantive. until then in tragic irony the million s of people who serve our food, take care of our children, and serve us in countless ways will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin
in the world that allows us to uncover territories completely untouched by civilization. it's fabulous. all the mountains have already been climbed by one route or another, but underground there's still much to discover. today we still find new networks of 30, 40, even 50 kilometres. vitarelles is now officially sealed off from the world. the military zone is close to cavers. no one will explore the cave system any time soon. that is, unless cavers can find a new way in, to this day, many continue to search for that possible fissure, that possible crack that will lead them back down into the abyss. if tomorrow we find a new entrance to that network, i will be the first to return.

go forward for the cia directorship and hagel to be confirmed until the white house gives us an accounting. >> is it fair to say you are leaning against voting for him. >> that would be fair. >> maybe that's why we haven't heard the full story about benghazi. >> allow myself to introduce myself. >> keep in mind, a lot of the sources are spies and for the most part spies don't like their names used. >> my name is richie cunningham. ♪ how you like me now ♪ how you like me now ♪ remember the time >> good afternoon, and we start in washington where we can observe two very different ways in which we might honor those who serve with this country's armed forces. first, the president led a medal of honor ceremony for staff sergeant clinton remache whose actions during an attack helped save the lives of dozens of his comrades. and then there is the concerted effort by republicans to deny another distinguished veteran from serving his country as secretary of defense. a senate committee scheduled to vote on the nomination of chuck hagel tomorrow. senator john mccain says, i will n
